“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes” ~ Neil Gaiman

I came across author Neil Gaiman’s blog recently and reading through it, was struck by a beautiful post from the author made on New Year’s eve. It reads:

“I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistake, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.”

It’s a few month’s into the new year, but better late to the party than never. So I am going to start (keep) making mistakes today, tomorrow and forever. Are you?
